    It's markekted as an RPG, has leveling, character building, and a reactive narrative. As RPG as it gets, the only thing it does differently is that conflict is resolved through a sports game.

    That's nothing new, Steve Jackson have done the same to early GURPS Fallout build two decades back. IIRC he opposed the Heap of Gore technology as over the top violent graphics presentation grinding his gears, before the license withdrawal.

    It literally takes only 5 minutes to do this. It took only one minute for me because I only voted for 10% of the games, those were the ones I've played. Shut the fuck up and do your duty Codexian!

    False. There isn't a place here where I can get LSD strips bundled in a boxed version of PS:T.

    This poll is a great reflection of the poll creator's, rpgcodex's, and the community's tastes and views on rpgs. Almost exclusively console games for children and retarded, sexually-frustrated, and maturity-stunted adults. This site is now more non-rpg and child game focused than rpgwatch, and as impossible as it seems, this community has even worse and far more childish taste.

    The old-guard would have never allowed an almost exclusive console-focused child game poll and would have laughed this poll's retarded creator out of town and to whatever popular gaming site pandering to retards was hot for the day. I have never been so proud to be looked down and obstricised by a community. The fact this site's leadership does not even allow me to make posts is something I wear like a badge of honor. What value could the thoughts of someone like me, or the old guard of this site, have when we like actual rpgs, which are all almost pc-exclusive? Obviously none so why let us start posts?

    I play every rpg released and I've literally never even heard of most of these games. I would say for shame, Codex, but none of you kids and retards have any or are capable or understanding you should.

    I'm not sure why we vote this shit every year like a media outlet. Aren't we more of a retrospective, conservative community? We should be discussing 2014 this year and, after next year's retrospective on Pillars, decide what was the real GotY in 2015.

    Yes, a few more reviews should clear things up.

    If you haven't noticed, most prestigious posters are using it as an opportunity to lament about the current state of rpgs, and remember better times.

    One year is too short of an interval to have a meaningful competition these days. At best there's 2 potential winners.

    Half the names of the games read like fake entries.

    Also, shouldn't Romancing Saga 2 be a 'port' since it's been on SNES for like 3 decades now?

    Don't see the buzz 'bout robowaifu simulator, action part done poorly, rpg part done even worse, storywise it's not as good as first Nier. Sounds like 2/4 but voted 1/4 just to provoke butthurt.
    ELEX and Grimoire both turned out to be easy 4/4.
    Numanuma & Andromeda ended up being shit tier 1/4 worth regardless of all the history of missteps behind both of them.

    I see Assassin's Kangz and Horizon: Zero Awards are excluded, and for a good reason.

    What a paralyzing year 'twas.

    Just imagine if things where shit back then and people still had shit taste back when this site wasn't overrun by retarded children who despise real rpgs how far it has fallen when the people who made the polls still did not include blatant non-rpgs or games made explicitly for children and consoles. There is only like 10 games in that whole post that should have been included. I'm not saying they are good games, or non-shit games, but if this site's leadership and poll creators consider everything to be an rpg why the fuck don't they just change the name of the site? Is truly embarrassing, and even more embarrassing when you consider that the people who should be embarrassed aren't smart enough to even know they should be.

    It's not my thing, but a lot of people enjoyed it. Nothing wrong with someone using a conflict resolution system other than combat in a role playing game, this kind of experimentation should be encouraged.
